Sunflower Sisters celebrates two strong and independent girls experiencing each other's South Asian and Nigerian traditions while learning to embrace the color of their dark brown skin
In this heartwarming celebration of skin shades from sun-browned to autumn-leaf-gold, Amitra and Kiki get dressed for their siblings' weddings while enduring family nitpicks about lightening cream, sun rays, and the skin-darkening effects of the color yellow. Luckily, Amitra's mother has a lesson or two to teach about that! With the support and empowerment of their moms, the sunflower sisters are two strong, confident girls–one South Asian the other Nigerian–finding joy in their own skin. Ages 4 to 8.
